---C'mon Dave, doesn't that sound a bit fanciful? Propaganda messages at

5 watts or so, radiated ??? Don't forget, like the "Kids Playing Radio"

(SW "pirates" ) that a program requires somebody knowing it's going to be

at a certain reliable, regular time and place, before anyone will "tune in".

Or to similute broadcast station beacons with

a radiated power miniscule compared to the field strength of broadcast

Fact is, in a war theatre far from populated areas, ANY frequency could be

and without too much background competition. Sometimes, LF and MF were simply

preferable for their propagation effects, compared to HF.
